We had many connections with David Day and his family. We both owned schnauzers that were close members of our respective families. We were neighbors living in military housing at Fort Hood. We both had a connection through our families with Oklahoma. Our children were close in age. He and I were aviators who served in Vietnam. He flew choppers and I flew transports. We both are patriots who quietly supported our country with quiet dignity. David demonstrated "nap of the earth" flying which was foreign to the Air Force at that time. I slept on their couch when they were stationed in Germany and I was deployed in support of NATO. She came to our new home in Sherwood, Arkansas to help us hang pictures. We both retired from military service and continued to be involved in aviation as a second career. We were both friends and I will miss him to the end of time.
Our condolences to his wife and daughters.

It was a honor to work with a dear friend and colleague. Thank you for your service for the United States of America and your loyalty to TSTC and our Departmental Programs.
You will be missed. I remember going to Washington when I met your brother, I thought you had followed me up there. You and your brother must be twins! God Bless.
